Jessica Daniel competition: Win Think of the Children

December 5, 2012

It is now less than three months until the release of Think of the Children. It has – literally – been over a year in the making already. I am giving away FIVE copies of the paperback proof edition. This is the copy that goes out to reviewers / bookshops / newspapers, etc, so aren’t the final paperbacks you’ll be able to buy in shops. As such, they are limited edition. I’ve even soiled them with my incomprehensible scrawl.

If you’d like the opportunity to read Think of the Children a full two and a bit months before anyone else, just answer this question: WHAT IS THE NAME OF JESSICA’S BOYFRIEND IN VIGILANTE?

If you know the answer, e-mail me:

  • using the subject title “Win Think of the Children”;
  • in the body, include your answer;
  • your name;
  • your address.

Assuming your answer is correct, you will go into the draw. The closing date is 18:00 BST on 14 December 2012 (Obviously we’ll hope to get the book to you before Christmas).

I will post the winners’ names here and on the Facebook group’s wall.
